A causeway is a track, road or railway on the upper point of an embankment across "a low, or wet place, or piece of water".
A road that is raised, so as to be above water, marshland, and similar low-lying obstacles. Originally causeways were much like dykes, generally pierced to let water through, whereas many modern causeways are more like bridges or viaducts.
